Greg Oden out for the season, yet again.
Watching NBATV right now and they are reporting that Greg Oden will have microfacture surgery on his left knee on Friday and will miss the remainder of the season.
Too bad. Oden is a great talent, but just can't stay healthy. I feel really bad for him.
Greg Oden out for the season - again.
I don't know what it is about Portland and centers but it seems like any big man who is drafted by them succumbs to injury.
The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
Wow, I really feel bad for him. Although we should really feel bad for the blazers and their fans because oden is making a lot of money.
Hopefully he saved some of that money because he might not make it back from this.
Captain Hindsight takes on Greg Oden.
It would be easy for me to pile on and point out the ineptitude of Portland's front office now but here's the thing -- I liked the pick and I certainly wasn't alone.
One national poll before the '07 draft asked 21 of the NBA's GMs at the time one simple question, Oden or Durant? Twenty came back in one direction and no, it wasn't the guy who is now All-NBA First Team.
Hindsight could never change that. Unfortunately injuries did.
Things I have enjoyed/noticed/hated this season so far:
1) Enjoyed: Watching Chris Paul be himself again. We wrote off the Hornets even though they were a 2 seed in the west very recently.
2) Enjoyed: The deepest PG group in the league, maybe ever. Rondo, Paul, Rose, Wall, Williams, Westbrook, Nash, Kidd, Miller, Brooks, Holiday, Billups, Parker, Curry, Jennings, Harris, Nelson, and even Bledsoe. When Rubio gets here that will only go up.
3) Noticed: This slow start is the best thing that ever happened to the Heat. It will keep them somewhat humble, show them their flaws, and make them work harder. If they had come out fast, they may have regretted it later. Greatness is earned.
4) Hated: I love DeMarcus, but you can't start feuding already. Yikes.
5) Hated: Missing Rasheed and the new Technical system. That would have been beyond entertaining.

I've watched two or three Clips games this year and I can't figure out how they aren't better. Blake Griffin will be a Top 10 player and is a lot of fun to watch. Gordon is very solid. Kaman is streaky, but a good compliment to Griffin. Baron Fat Davis is killing them, but Bledsoe is playing well for a rookie point guard. I'm not saying this is a playoff team, but they have the worst record in the NBA and that just baffles me.
